ACROSS THE STATE Austin

Abbott criticizes Davis over abortion filibuster Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott on Saturday criticized Democratic challenger Wendy Davis’ 2013 filibuster to delay new abortion restrictions in Texas and touted his record of defending state abortion laws over the last decade. Abbott spoke to about 2,000 anti-abortion demonstrators at the state Capitol for the Texas Rally for Life. Abbott never used Davis’ name in his remarks, but referred to her as a “little known” state senator who seized on the publicity generated by her nearly 13-hour filibuster that delayed an abortion restrictions bill. The bill that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and placed further restrictions on providers passed a few weeks later. Abbott said Davis wants to

return Texas to “late-term abortion on demand.” A Davis spokeswoman called the law an “abuse of power.” Organizers said they held Saturday’s rally to focus on the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. But it was Abbott, and the campaign for governor, that

grabbed the attention. Abbott was the only candidate for statewide office to address the rally. “The most important issue in Texas is not taking lives, it is saving lives,” Abbott told the cheering crowd that booed any reference of Davis, the filibuster or her campaign. — The Associated Press

whether a pregnant woman who is considered legally and medically dead should be kept on life support for the sake of a fetus. It also has gripped attention on both sides of the abortion debate, with anti-abortion groups arguing Munoz’s fetus deserves a chance to be born. Several anti-abortion advocates attended Friday’s hearing. Hospital officials have said they were bound by the Texas Advance Directives Act, which prohibits withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment from a pregnant patient. But in his brief ruling, Wallace said that “Mrs. Munoz is dead,” meaning that the hospital was misapplying the law. The ruling did not mention the fetus. The hospital has not pronounced her dead and has continued to treat her over the objections of both Erick Munoz and her parents, who sat together in court Friday.

When ordering your prescription eyeglasses, give careful consideration to having them treated with an antireflective (AR) coating. By eliminating reflections from the surfaces of both the fronts and backs of each eyeglass lens, AR coatings improve vision and also make it possible for people to see the wearer’s eyes and facial expressions more clearly. This benefit is sure to be appreciated by those who have ever had their pictures taken with their glasses on. AR coatings are particularly beneficial for those wearing high-index lenses, which tend to reflect more light than regular plastic lenses. In any case, AR coatings promote sharper vision with less glare at night and more comfortable vision during prolonged sessions at the computer screen. Some eyeglass lenses have factory-applied AR coating on both lens surfaces. Other lenses, particularly progressive lenses and other multifocal lenses, like bifocals and trifocals, have the coating applied after the lenses have been personalized to your eyeglass prescription by an optical lab. Please call RAGSDALE VISION CENTER, at 387-9595 to schedule a comprehensive eye exam that includes screening for macular degeneration. We are located at 526 N. Locust. Hours are Mon.-Fri. 8:305:30 and Sat. 9-12. P.S. High-index lenses are lighter and thinner than regular lenses due to their greater light-focusing power.

be born. Wallace gave the Fort Worth hospital until 5 p.m. Monday to remove life support. Labbe declined to elaborate Saturday on what the hospital’s next step might be — whether to appeal the judge’s order or comply with it. The hospital previously has said it has a legal duty to protect the fetus. Both the hospital and the family agree that Marlise Munoz meets the criteria to be considered brain-dead — which means she is dead both medically and under Texas law — and that the fetus could not be born alive this early in pregnancy. But while the hospital says it’s obligated to protect the fetus, Munoz contends his wife would not have wanted to be kept in this condition. And his attorneys have said medical records show the fetus is “distinctly abnormal.” The case has raised questions about end-of-life care and

CARING FOR YOUR EYES

FORT WORTH — Hospital executives in North Texas were conferring Saturday with the district attorney’s office to determine their next step following a judge’s ruling that they must disconnect life support for a pregnant, brain-dead woman, according to a hospital official. John Peter Smith Hospital spokeswoman J.R. Labbe said “discussions are ongoing” as administrators weigh the order issued a day earlier by Judge R. H. Wallace Jr. The hospital is owned by Tarrant County and is being represented in the contentious case by the DA’s office. Wallace agreed with a request by Erick Munoz to have life support removed for his wife, Marlise Munoz. She was 14 weeks pregnant with the couple’s second child when her husband found her unconscious Nov. 26, possibly due to a blood clot. The judge’s ruling could give Erick Munoz a long-awaited chance to bury his wife and move forward to care for their son and his relatives. It would also mean the fetus would never
